UFT borough offices
The UFT has an office in each borough staffed by specially trained representatives who can answer members’ questions about salary, certification and licensing, health coverage and other benefits, educational requirements, safety, pension and much more.
Our borough office staff
Each office is staffed by a borough representative, a district representative (DR, for short) for every community school district, a high school representative and several special representatives.
The borough representative coordinates each borough’s activities. Part of the borough rep’s job is to act as the union’s chief political representative in the borough, lobbying elected officials and other decision-makers on behalf of the public schools. The other UFT reps handle problems or grievances that cannot be settled at the school level and address matters of districtwide significance.
Our hours of operation
During the summer, UFT borough offices are open Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.– 5:15 p.m.
Borough offices will be closed for maintenance from Monday, Aug. 15 to 26 and will reopen on Monday, Aug. 29, on the modified summer schedule through Labor Day. You can reach the union at 212-331-6311 if you need assistance during that time.
